It appears Hopper had an automatic pistol that he had fired once in shooting out the windshield. Cage was aware that the magazine clip had been removed from the weapon that ended on the seat of the car, placed there by Walsh who picked up the weapon from the ground and was retrieved by Boyle before taking it on the train with Cage. it seems there should have been a round in the automatic's cylinder even though the clip was removed. I do not know much about weapons but I thought people got killed daily by weapons they believe are empty because the clip was removed.It seems it should have fired once at Cage when the trigger was pulled.

If you like plot turns, this is your movie. Top-notch.
If you like plot turns, this is your movie. It is impossible at any moment to predict what will happen next. Nothing is as it appears or ends as you think it will. The characters are all gritty and engaging. Cage is at his best. Dennis Hopper again shows his delightfully sinister side. JT Walsh is perfect in his last performance. Laura Boyle sizzles. Dwight Yoakum makes a film debut superbly in a cameo. I categorize this movie as "I am having a really, really, really bad day" film. Not a slow minute in this film. A real sleeper. This movie is underrated and, sadly, overlooked.
